The U.P. Garden Tour is coming up Saturday, May 20 and Sunday, May 21, offering tours of six private gardens and two community gardens in U.P. (Actually, one garden is in Fircrest, but close enough!) Tours run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Curran House will be open, as well.
This tour will be educational and inspirational, appealing to everyone interested in any aspect of gardening. Three of the gardens are in one cul-de-sac, a boon for tour-goers.
In addition, the Seattle Seahawks have made generous donations that will be offered in either a drawing or silent auction: four tickets for a game valued at $1,200; a mini helmet signed by Russell Wilson; a game-use football signed by Michael Bennett; and a jersey signed by Doug Baldwin. These items will be at one of the gardens on the tour.
Tickets for the U.P. Garden Tour are $20 each, and available at Willow Tree Gardens and Interiors at 7216 27th St. W., University Place; Grassi’s Boutique at 2811 Bridgeport Way W., University Place; Chirp and Company, 3803 N. 26th St., Tacoma; Portland Avenue Nursery at 1409 E. 59th St., Tacoma; and Lakewold Gardens at 12317 Gravelly Lake Dr. SW, Lakewood.
